Sherlock's Speedy Sarnie

'Sherlock' sandwich shop is a hit amongst tourists

Location: 187 North Gower Street, Camden, NW1 2NJ

Description: A London sandwich shop has become an unlikely tourist destination after featuring in the BBC1 series 'Sherlock'.

The owner of Speedy's Sandwich Bar, which is used as the exterior of Sherlock Holmes' flat, told the Mail that hundreds of fans have flocked to the location.

The shop is actually on North Gower Street, which is half a mile from Baker Street. The BBC was unable to film on the real Baker Street due to the heavy traffic.

Speedy's owner Chris Georgiou told the paper: 'Even though the show only started a month ago, we've had 200 new customers who recognised the shopfront and asked if it was 221B Baker Street.'
